What We Are About
Sasiani African Safaris is not your standard African Safari Travel Agency rather we reconnect people with nature through a very diverse collection of professional experienced based and personalised safaris and explorations. All itineraries are designed with safety and comfort in mind, inspiring intrepid adventurers, budget conscious travellers and discerning travellers seeking the ultimate adventure and relaxation in the African wilderness.
We are a Conservation Advocate that progressively supports safari and tour operators who engage Responsible and Visionary Practices leading the way in Environmental Sustainability through Conservation and Eco Tourism, as well as supporting Eco-Friendly Businesses.
As a conservation focused travel agency we financially contribute to non-profit organisations that protect and support wildlife, vulnerable Eco-systems and conservation initiatives in Africa as well as animal welfare and wildlife rescue organisations in Australia. Therefore, we do not inject money into glossy marketing merchandise rather we direct funds into the preservation of ‘African and Australian Wildlife and Threatened Environments’; so, they are here for generations to come.
”In essence we are about creating Unforgettable Memories and Travel Experiences that Educate and Positively Change the way Guests view Sustainable Travel and the Natural World. Ideally, we want our Guests to become Conservation Ambassadors and return to Africa”
‘Our Mission is to offer the Finest Personalised African Travel Service and Contribute Funding to Conservation Initiatives Dedicated to the Preservation of African and Australian Wildlife and Biomes’
Amazing journeys begin with a vibrant history and there is no exception for our Founder and General Manager, Caroline Berkeley, whose African legacy spans more than 100 years. As an environmental scientist and dedicated naturalist Caroline has combined her passion for the natural world, her networking expertise, 30 years of international travel and management with some of Africa’s leading Conservation Tourism and Ecotourism Safari Operators to create Sasiani African Safaris.
Caroline’s true passion for Africa’s wildlife, people and natural world blossomed during a research placement in Kruger National Park, South Africa, many years ago. Throughout this time, she envisioned a safari travel agency with a difference one that specialises in diversity, personalization and reconnecting people with nature; making each experience unique, and creating adventure opportunities not only for the travel enthusiast but also the physically disabled and anyone with a spirit for adventure. Subsequently, this experience formed the seed that has been nurtured to become Sasiani African Safaris.
As a self-proclaimed adventurer, some of Caroline’s escapade credits include; driving the vastness of Namibia’s deserts, cycling in the Kalahari, solo driving the South African/Mozambique border, traversing Northern Botswana, walking amongst Africa’s iconic wildlife and participating in African rhino, elephant and ecology field research projects. Her travel adventures have taken her around the world, in addition to working in America, Australia, England, Scotland, Fiji, New Zealand, Samoa, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
We’re Dedicated to Creating your Adventure of a Lifetime – Sasiani Team

What’s in the Name “Sasiani”
Sasiani African Safaris was proudly named after Caroline’s family farm near Eldoret in Kenya. Her grandfather, Ronald Berkeley, named the farm after the Sosiani River (with a slight spelling adjustment) that snakes through the heart of Eldoret giving life to the town. The name “Sasiani” perfectly depicts Ronald; he was a passionate and spirited adventurer, dedicated conservationist and advocate for the people. “Sasiani, is the perfect name”.
